HC Deb 27 July 1967 vol 751 cc194-5W
56. Mr. Wright

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science by what authority the Schools Council propose to publish text-books for use in schools.

Mr. Crosland

The Schools Council has decided to set up a company which will negotiate with commercial publishers for the publication, among other things, of teaching materials resulting from the development projects which the Council has financed. The Council is representative of all parts of the education system with teachers in a majority. It requires no outside authority for this decision.
